U.S. Senate Dem. primary: Brian Schatz has overtaken Colleen Hanabusa, 48-47 percent, in what remains a nail-biter. For Governor, David Ige’s lead over Gov. Neil Abercrombie has narrowed only a little, 57-49 percent. In the only seriously contested state Senate race, Lorraine Inouye still holds a commanding lead over incumbent Malama Solomon, 56 percent to 39 percent. In the State Rep. District 4 race, Joy SanBuenaventura still holds a more than 2-1 lead over incumbent Faye Hanohano. In Council races, Valerie Poindexter (Dist. 1), Aaron Chung (Dist. 2), Maile David-Medeiros (Dist. 6) and Karen Eoff (Dist. 8) all still seem to be cruising to easy victories, while Districts 4, 5 and 9 still appear to be headed for runoffs. District 4 incumbent Gregor Ilagan still leads nearest challenger Roy Lozano by 37 to 27 percent, and Margaret Wille is still ahead of nearest challenger Ronald Gonzales, 45 to 27 percent. But the District 5 race is tightening: leading contender Daniel Paleka now leads Tiffany Edwards Hunt by only 4 percentage points, 34 to 30 percent.
